I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time for less than a year

Pros

starting out money is great, get full benefits in 30 days ,get vacation time and sick time in 90 days will work with you if you do have to miss a lot of time, very good discount on items

Cons

The only real problem i see is it is very difficult to get a "day" shift job but that is expected

    Too many initiatives

    HR runs the company
    Sales and managers have 5-20% of their salary at risk
    High stress level
    No fusion with the 2 largest suppliers- KMT and Seco.

    Cut down on paperwork and meetings
    Initiatives are out of control
    Don't punish the messenger
    learn from other companies, sometimes they do it better !!
